  1. I did this in 10.10 and when I open gimp the
    version is still even when I reboot.
    Any recommendations?

  2. Followed the instructions…Gimp does not install, tells me latest version is already installed. Have Ubuntu 10.04 and Gimp 2.6.8.


  3. I think you have to have gimp 2.6.10 installed already then run the commands. That’s what worked for me.

  4. meanwhile it worked – i do not know my mistake anymore, maybe i copied all three command in one ?

  5. Ubuntu 10.04
    I removed gimp (and xsane) and then followed the above instructions. It did not work, I still have gimp 2.6.8 instead of 2.6.11 (trying to resolve printing problem)

  6. thanks alot this worked fine for me i now have 2.6.11 of gimp on my laptop after updating to ubuntu 10.10
